Security Bulletin: Apache Axis2 related vulnerability for IBM Tivoli Directory
Apache Axis2 SSL vulnerability for IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator
Axis2 implemented in Java is vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks. By
extension, all applications using this library to establish SSL connections
with the target servers may be affected by this vulnerability. Data sent over
the network, such as login credentials, bank account numbers, personal
identifiable information, may be compromised. The vulnerability can be exposed
in any network topology in which a man-in-the-middle can be deployed. Since IBM
Tivoli Directory Integrator v7.0, v7.1 and v7.1.1 uses Axis2 library they may
be vulnerable to the attack.
The attack does not require local network access nor does it require
authentication, but specialized knowledge and techniques are required. An
exploit will not impact accessibility of system resources or the
confidentiality of information, but the integrity of some of the transmitted
data could be compromised.
